Fairy telling






Once upon a time, I read that your favorite fairy tale could reveal a lot about your personality.  Maybe it was from Bruno Bettelheim, maybe it was from an internet chain letter.
Who knows.

Mine has always been Rapunzel.
It takes no psychotherapist to figure out why.
I mean really.

Locked up in a tower by an over protective parental figure? 
Duh.
Anyway, I always loved  how she didn't just wait for the Prince to make his way up to her.
Hell, she gave him a rope...even if it must have hurt her hair.
That's me, baby.  That's me.

So, what's yours?

Toot away...I'd ask if I could watch, but that would probably be rude.

Not fairy tales, but jackie collins' trashy novels for me!

Princess said...

Still waiting for my prince to cum...

Wow, you did this pen and ink, Jason? Serious talent!


I liked all Fairy Tales because of the great illustrations, especially if there were clothes, or food, involved. I especially liked, "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" because they got nurtured with, "..bread and milk and blackberries for supper". That sounds so yummy delicious!

PS I do NOT have an eating disorder.

My favorite is The Little Match Girl, for it is so transforming and sad/comforting.

Thumbelina. I make no apologies.

It's the "COCKchafers" that drew Mr. Peenee to Thumbelina.

So why did you illustrate this with Alice?

My favorite? Hansel and Gretel. Well, it's my favorite until they push that dear old lady into the fire. Shameful.

St-Exupéry's The Little Prince!

...or was it Astérix et Obélix?

They're not even fairy tales! Oh Lord!

Speaking of the Lord... I think Joseph in Egypt was my favorite story although not a fairy tale either...

You ask for a fairy tale, didn't you?

Mine is an easy one to Sleeping Beauty! I'm always passed out from the gin intake.

Mine was The ugly ducking... and it figures: I gradually got over my chidlhood&adolescence complexes. Needless to say, I was not popular in school/highschool (a freak) but I'm living it up now.

Sleeping beauty.

Poking around where I ought not meets wake me up when it's ready.

I would have to say Rapunzel as well- being locked up in a tower (of my own design) resonates and unfortunately I keep cutting my hair.
